How long will it take to earn my degree?
The length of your degree will largely depend on how many units you undertake per teaching period. The number of units required to complete a degree varies from qualification to qualification and you can see how many units are required to complete a particular degree on our Course Pages.
Alternatively, you can have a look at our Course Planners for more detailed information about how to manage a specific degree. As students have the option of studying between one and four units per teaching period and can change their study load throughout, each student will graduate at a different point.
If you are studying a VET course, you can personalise your program, giving you the freedom to set your own goals, choose what units you study first, and determine how long you spend on each one. So whether you want to complete your diploma in two months or over a year — you can work towards your goals at a pace that suits you.
It’s important to note that number of study hours required for each diploma does change, and you can view the specific requirements on our VET course pages.
